An army of youngsters helped boost funds at a Boys’ Brigade (BB) coffee morning.

Primary school-aged boys from the 1st Campbeltown Company BB lined up to be given their orders on which tables to serve last Saturday.

Mince pies and other festive treats were delivered with military position while piping hot tea and coffee was served by supervising adults.

The young recruits from Anchor Boys and Junior Section also helped their parents run baking and lucky dip stalls and a guess the number of sweets in the jar competition.

The Lorne and Lowland Church Hall event raised £458.40 for the company’s funds.

A spokesperson said: ‘The boys would like to thank all who supported this event by being there or donating baking, etc.’
